Random Poem:

that little girl - she knew
Louisie

That little girl,
 1
she sat alone.
 2
The tiny one that no one knew.
 3
And yet somehow
 4
she knew each one.
 5
She spoke little
 6
but watched all
 7
with her wise eyes
 8
to old for her age.
 9
The day the teacher cried
 10
you ran to play
 11
but somehow, that little girl-
 12
she knew.
 13
She held her hand and
 14
wiped her tears.
 15
No one noticed
 16
no one cared,
 17
your dog had ran away.
 18
but somehow that little girl-
 19
she knew.
 20
And as you watched
 21
the others played.
 22
That little girl sat by your side,
 23
held your hand and
 24
dried your tears.
 25
But troubles fade,
 26
as rainy days.
 27
That little girl
 28
was fading too.
 29
That little girl,
 30
she sat alone.
 31
The tiny one that no one knew.
 32
And yet somehow
 33
she knew each one.
 34
She spoke little
 35
but watched all
 36
with her wise eyes
 37
to old for her age.
 38
Now today,
 39
that little girl
 40
the tiny one in the corner,
 41
she cries.
 42
But no one sees.
